Lucas & Lewellen have made a real crowd pleaser with their 2006 Merlot from the Los Alamos Vineyards of Santa Barbara County! The long, mild summer of 2006 produced truly exceptional fruit from this site, with great maturity and delicious balance…resulting in a wine with classic structure and lusciously smooth dark fruit flavors.
Some vines within the Los Alamos Vineyards are from cuttings brought over from Europe more than 25 years ago, and they have long been a favorite source for many of California’s best wineries. The Lucas & Lewellen 2006 Merlot really represents what this vineyard site is capable of: a rich, dark wine with concentrated notes of black cherry, leather, earth, and spicy oak, with soft tannins and a classic, velvety smooth finish.
This wine is a Gold Medal Special Selection, offered as a pre release exclusively to Gold Medal Wine Club members – lucky you! Try pairing the Lucas & Lewellen 2006 Merlot with rich, decadent dishes such as shepherds pie, meatballs with wild mushrooms, and roasted lamb.
